Overview

Paris has the Eiffel Tower, New York the Statue of Liberty and Geneva its Jet d'Eau. This majestic 140-meter (459-feet) water fountain, one of the tallest in the world, is the main emblem of the city, and one which cannot be missed. Its beauty dominates the lakefront and at night, when it is lit up; it is a breathtaking and romantic sight. It projects 500 liters (528 quarts) of water per second at the unbelievable speed of 200 kilometers (124 miles) per hour. You can walk along the jetty and get a closer look at the fountain, as long as you don't mind being sprayed.
